Xenoblade 2 is an SNES era JRPG made in 2017. If that doesn't wet your panties, get Skyrim.

I dont wear panties but it does make my balls tingle

Don't knock it until you try it.

Am I talking about the panties or the game? You'll never know.

I'm talking about the panties.



Well, this is new.

If you're looking for a glitchy game where a dragon can show up anytime, fly to the nearest village and perma-kill a bunch of quest-related NPCs, shopkeepers and trainers,  Skyrim is your game.

Well I've been somewhat busy this month, so I only have the default suit still.

But honestly if it's takes that long for the story to get good then it probably isn't a good story overall.

Nah, it's good form the start and builds to something amazing and pretty mind blowing. Esp if you completed the original. Not needed but means more.

Wait, so is the second game a story sequel to the first? I thought it was an unrelated sequel, like the Final Fantasy games, might make some references and have enemies or weapons that appear, but if it's an actual sequel I'm gonna' have to try and finish the first before I get the second o.O



Xenoblade Chronciles 2 ! The story, soundtrack and combat system are AMAZING

It's technically related but also unrelated the is a link between the two games but each game still is stand alone in its events you don't need to play one to understand the other. I'm still in Chapter 4 of XBC but those who have finished the game have confirmed a link between the two games.

XC2... Skyrim is a relic from the past man : couldn't be a weaker combat system if you tried. XC2 is such a bizarre, wonderful, genius game in mechanics, design and story. They couldn't be more different : first person walking simulator versus 3rd person tactical squad management. As others have said though can't go wrong you probably need both. One thing they both do fantastically is world building : so maybe think "do I like snow and ice and caves and vikings and stuff", or "do i like the ideas of diving off islands that are flying titans into a cloud sea for treasure ? and boobs". Either way the world is huge and you can get lost in it. It's a great question! Western vs Eastern RPG...

It depends on what style genre of rpg appeals to you more. Are you looking for something different or something that you would generally play? Also, if you're lost read reviews and think about what interest your more rather than whats the popular decision. Being on a group like this also helps, but be weary of bias. Popularity and critical acclaim should only be useful as an enjoyment aggregate. I more often than note take note from the critical acclaim. Think about that and it should steer you in the right direction.

Buy Xenoblade now and wait for the eventual price drop on Skyrim to get it. 



Xenoblade. Skyrim will probably drop in price a month or two from now by which time you will be done with Xenoblade. While Xenoblade will not drop in price for a long time. So you will be saving money and get two games in three months instead of waiting to get Xenoblade later when you have the money



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Got any examples for the soundtrack? I love videogame music and the soundtrack of a game is a huge selling point to me

So it's related AND unrelated? Sounds a bit confusing lol... is it anything like the whole Chrono Trigger/Chrono Cross situation?
